Summary

This collection focuses on Frederick Winslow Taylor (1856-1915), the initiator of "scientific management." His methods have been associated with both massive increases in productivity and an intensive focus on control. Bringing together key scholarship on Taylor published in journals from 1912 through 2000, the papers are grouped thematically. Contents include: * Taylor, a Potted History * Taylor's Influence * Scientific Management and Management * Scientific Management and Industry * Scientific Management and Business Operations * Scientific Management and Education; and more.
